FAQ
Hello Guys,

Recently, I have installed some custom packaged of glibc in servers I
manage due to vulnerabilities. At that time, official centos packages
were not available. Now, I want to roll back to centos versions.

I tried a lot of options. "yum downgrade" is attempting to remove lot
of packages which I can't afford. Yum install is hitting dependency
errors.

Is there a way out ? Thanks in advance for any help/advice any one could offer.
